A very well-maintained trail in the coastal headlands that lead you to some very secluded shoreline. An excellent option is you want to get away from the crowds.

nice moderate hike, especially for kids

We hiked the Shell Beach trail. The hike was very easy and short only a little over a mile out and back. The San Andreas fault line runs through Tomales Bay. The view from Shell Beach is very panoramic. We went at low tide when the rocks on the beach were covered with mussels. It's a nice short hike and the beach is a good spot for a picnic or fishing ;)
